Thank you for all of your comments on Wednesday’s blog, wishing Susan well. The surgery went just fine and she’s resting comfortably at home. (Watching good movies, hanging out with her kids, and letting everyone wait on her, hopefully!) Knowing Susan, she’ll be back here with us at Loopy Central in no time. In the midst of all of the comments on that post, you might’ve caught the one that she wrote back to all of you. But just in case you didn’t, here it is:
She told me about this conversation that she had, while she was in getting an MRI before surgery yesterday:
Nurse: “Oh, you have on nice warm socks!”
Susan: “Handknit socks.” (Hariamrit – your socks kept Susan’s feet warm!)
Nurse: “Hand knit? Do people still knit???”
Susan: “You have no idea….”
Thanks for giving Susan such a great big LOOPY HUG!
I hope you’re planning a nice weekend and doing something special for Valentine’s Day. (My favorite part about Valentine’s Day? It’s Knitting Daughter’s birthday – she will be 19 tomorrow! Of course this is also the first birthday where she’s not home with us to celebrate and I don’t like that part of it.) I saw this video posted by one of my friends on Facebook and clicked over to take a look. I can’t believe the dollars that are spent on cards, flowers and chocolate every Valentine’s Day. I thought that it was a GREAT idea to forego a card and donate $5 to this wonderful organization instead, and wanted to pass it on in case you are interested. (I am not, however, suggesting that you forego the chocolate. I would never do that.)
Do you like the felted hearts on our Loopies in the photo? Elf Donna made them so that they could be totally prepared to celebrate the holiday in style. Of course the happiest Little Loopy is the one that gets to sit inside the heart pocket, holding on to his felted rose.
Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for sharing so much LOVE with all of us here this week. We appreciate every one of you!
